Lancope’s ‘University of NetFlow’ Seminar Coming to Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Detroit

Attendees will learn how to bolster their network defenses in light of rising attacks

ATLANTA, July 30, 2012 Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, is bringing its popular ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars to Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Detroit in August. With online attacks rising in frequency and sophistication on a daily basis, seminar attendees will learn how to leverage NetFlow, IPFIX and other flow data to bolster their network defenses and maintain high levels of performance in light of ever-changing attack vectors. For further details on the complimentary seminars, or to register, go to: http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.

Between Flame, the Flashback trojan and a slew of password breaches from the likes of LinkedIn and Yahoo Voice, 2012 has already been a very active year for security threats. Coupled with evolving network trends such as virtualization and BYOD, these high-profile threats are making it more difficult for governments and enterprises to protect themselves with traditional security tools.

By collecting and analyzing flow data within their existing infrastructure, organizations can obtain the end-to-end network visibility needed to defend against the full spectrum of attacks facing today’s networks – from APTs and botnets to the insider threat. In addition to streamlining network troubleshooting and significantly strengthening an organization’s security posture, NetFlow collection and analysis can also improve network performance and availability, forensic investigations and compliance initiatives – at a fraction of the cost of other monitoring solutions.

As an established leader in flow-based monitoring for the past 13 years, Lancope is well-equipped to advise organizations of all sizes on how to make the most of their infrastructure to dramatically improve both network and security operations. Not relying on signature updates, Lancope’s StealthWatch® System conducts sophisticated behavioral analysis on flow data to provide comprehensive visibility and protection across the entire network.

StealthWatch is scalable to up to 3 million flows per second to meet the needs of even the largest networks. The system is used by hundreds of government agencies and Global 2000 enterprises, including Cisco, the creator of NetFlow. StealthWatch also makes up a key component of the Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution.

Dates for the upcoming ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars include:

The seminars are presented free of charge, and those interested can register at http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.
